New~ Can President Donald Trump Fire FBI Director James Comey?(2)

Guide:If Trump were to dismiss Comey before the investigation into Russia’s election tampering is completed, the move would be similar to President Richard Nixon’s firing of Watergate Special Prosecutor

If Trump were to dismiss Comey before the investigation into Russia’s election tampering is completed, the move would be similar to President Richard Nixon’s firing of Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox in 1973. In what became known as the Saturday Night Massacre, Nixon’s attorney general, Elliot Richardson, and deputy attorney general, William Ruckelshaus, both resigned when Nixon asked them to fire Cox. Solicitor General Robert Bork ultimately handled the dismissal. The ordeal “set loose a series of fresh convulsions that shook his scandal-ridden government to its foundations,” Newsweek reported in a cover story at the time.

Comey’s associates have told Newsweek it is unlikely that the director is afraid of Trump. “He’s very comfortable,” Michael Steinbach, who retired in February as the FBI’s executive assistant director overseeing national security, said in April. “He’s grounded in his family. He’s got a strong sense of beliefs. He’s going to do what he believes is the right thing to do for the country, for the FBI.”

The director said at an event in March, “We really don’t care whose political ox is gored by our work, and that is the passion at the heart of the FBI.”
